PAPER-BAG HOLDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 721,996, dated March 3, 1903. Application tiled December 30,1902. Serial No. 137,163- (N0 model-5 To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that LLEsLIE COMES BUNNELL, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Paris, in the county of Bourbon and State of Kentucky, have invented a new and Improved Paper-Bag Holder, ofwhich the following is a full, clear, and exact description. This invention relates to means for holding paper bags in quantity lapped and clamped togetherin sequence, readyfor removalsingly or in greater number, as may be required, and has for its object to provide novel details of construction for a device of the character indicated which adapt the novelbag-holder for very efcient service and enable the instant removal of one or more bags without disarranging others left remaining in the holder.
The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of parts, as is hereinafter described,and defined in the appended claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure l is a perspective view of the improved bag-holder shown holding a number of paper bags. Fig. 2 is a rear View of the device, and Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view of the improvement substantially on the line 3 3 in Fig. 1.
In the drawings that represent the construe-` the back board 5 consists of a preferably' wooden planchette rectangular inform and having dimensions proportioned to the sizev of the paper bags said back board is to support. At a suitable point near one end of the back board 5 a transverse groove a is formed in its rear surface at right angles to the parallel side edges of the board. From the transverse groove a two spaced short grooves d' extend, these being respectively near the side edges of the board 5, the grooves ct having equal depth to that of the groove o., of which they virtually are portions, and project from the same side edge of the transverse groove.
A holder-clamp, preferably formed of a sin- V,to the Vwidth of the back board 5 and should slightly exceed it, so that the arms 6a may V4loosely embrace the side edges of the back board. At two points b equally distant from the bends b the wire material is again bent,
so as to project two members 6b of equal length r toward each other and parallel with the clamping-bar 6. Ata short distance from the free ends ofV each of the holder members 6ta fin- ;ger 6c is formed by bending the material at a right angle, as indicated at c in Fig. 2. The length of the members 6b is equal and so proportioned that the fingers 6 may be bedded in the lateral grooves a when the said members 6b are seated in the transverse groove a near and substantially parallel with each other, and, as shown in Fig. 2, the holder members'b are secured upon the back board 5 by a plurality of staples 7, that are caused to embracel said members and are firmly af fixed in the back board, as indicated in Fig. 3.
It will be seen that the provision of the fingers 6c on the members 6b converts said portions ofthe holder-clam p into tension-springs,
,which coact with the arms 6a and transverse Yat d, near the angular bends b', which causes the clamping-bar 6 to press with greater force upon a small number of paper bags than it otherwise would.
An important detail of the invention embodies simple and efficient means for clamping a plurality of paper bags A atf their side edges A when they are held in osition on the back board 5 by the clamping-bar 6, said means comprising a novel supplementary clamp that will be described.
A resilient wire strand is proyided of suitable length and bent into a loop e at the center of its length, which loop is secured upon the rear of the back board 5 at its transverse IOO center above the groove a therein by a staple e'. The back board 5 is oppositely notched in its side edges, preferably near the clamping-bar 6, said notches g having a depth that adapts them to underlie the side edges of the bags A when clamped on the back board. A bend 7L is formed at a proper distance from each extremity of the wire material, thus producing two pressure-limbs SiL on the divergent arms 8, that extend from the loop e outward and downward to the notches g, in which the pressure-limbs 8 are positioned and project forwardly. The main arms 8 are secured upon the rear surface of the back board 5 at suitable points by staples c2, and it is essential that these staples be positioned far enough from the pressure-limbs 8a to permit the latter to exert torsional stress laterally or upon the side edges A of the paper bags A when the latter are clamped upon the back board 5. The length of the pressurelimbs 8 should be suicient to permit them to have contact with a considerable number of paper bags A when they are clamped upon the back board 5, and it will be seen that within a proper range the bag-holder complete will receive and hold bags of more than one width and capacity.
In service, assuming that the back board 5 is supported in any preferred manner and by any suitable means at a point for the convenient delivery of paper bags and that a sufficient number of the latter are held on said back board bythe joint action of the clamping-bar 6 and the resilient limbs 8, it will be seen that by pulling upon the lower end of a bag A it will slip from the clasp of the bar 6 and limbs 8, as may be required. Furthermore, as the pressure-limbs 8a frictionally engage the side edges of the paper bags such as are not subjected to a direct pull will remain clamped upon the back board 5. Obviously by taking hold of two or more bags at a time these may be together pulled from the bag-holder.
As each size of the improved bag-holder will accommodate two o'r three widths ofpaper bags, it will be seen that few sizes need be provided to properly hold all the paper bags used, from the largest to the smallest of such paper receptacles.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A paper-bag holder comprising a back board, a holder-clamp that presses a plurality of paper bags against the back board, and a supplementary clamp having two springpressed limbs which have enforced contact with the side edges of the clamped paper bags.
2. A paper-bag holder comprising a back board, a holder-clamp comprising two springpressed arms, and a transverse bar which engages the outer one of a series of paper bags imposed on the back board, and a supplementary clamp consisting of two springpressed limbs which have enforced contact with the side edges of paper bags clamped upon the back board.
3. A paper-bag holder comprising an oblong back board, a holder-clamp formed of resilient wire, having a clamping-bar, two side arms on the ends of the clamping-bar, two members on the ends of the side arms spaced from and parallel with the clampingbar, a finger bent on each of said members, means for securing the holder members on the rear face of the back board, and a supplementary clamp comprising two springarms bent at the ends thereof to form integral pressure-limbs thereon, and means for securing the spring-arms on the rear face of the back board, so as to dispose the pressurelimbs at the side edges of the back board and adapt them to press upon the side edges of paper bags clamped on the back board.
4. A paper-bag holder, comprising an oblong rectangular back board having a transverse groove in its rear face, and two grooved extensions intersecting the transverse groove at one edge near the ends thereof, of a holderclamp comprising a transverse clamping-bar, two integral resilient arms extended at right angles from the ends of the clamping-bar, two spring members formed at the ends of the resilient arms parallel with the clamping-bar, a lateral finger bent on the free end of each spring member, saidy members and fingers being secured in the grooves of the back board so as to give torsional force to the springarms, and a su pplementaryspring-clamp comprising two integral spring members bent from a wire rod diverging from a loop thereon, means for securing said members on the rear face of the back board, and a pressurelimb formed on the free end of each spring member, each limb extending forwardly through a notch formed in a respective side edge of the back board.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
LESLIE COMBS BUNNELL.
